FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Kattacktm Race Player at Acura Miami Grand Prix
Minneapolis, MN, March 5, 2007 – Daily results of the Acura Miami Grand Prix will include much more than just the finishing order in 2007. Courtesy of www.Kattack.com, all of the racing in Miami will feature detailed GPS tracking data for every race in every fleet. Each evening you'll now be able to see every tack, port duck, missed shift and penalty spin.
According to Kattack President Tom Verburgt “Kattack changes sailboat race reporting and makes the racing more accessible to viewers. Results are results, but this shows the whole story of how the race went. Was the race won with tactics, crew work, or boat speed? Kattack makes this clear to web spectators.”
Viewers can visit www.Kattack.com or www.Premiere-Racing.com to watch replays of each race. Video versions of all races will be offered for people who have not yet downloaded the Kattack Race Player. Best of all, video replays are FREE.
For those desiring the full media experience, the Kattack Race Player is still available as a FREE beta download. Using the Race Player, viewers can analyze individual boat performance, zoom in or out, speed up or slow down, observe wind shifts, isolate individual boats, and catch every tactical nuance of the race along with polars and speed strip charts for each boat.
Race player data should be available by 5:00pm each evening, and all videos should be posted by 9:00pm (Eastern time).
Kattack provides educational and compelling race playback that can be found nowhere else at an affordable cost. For anyone not at the race with a RIB, Kattack is quickly becoming the most compelling way to watch sailboat races. Founded by Tom Verburgt and Steve Palm, Kattacktm is beginning to offer it's services to yacht clubs, regatta organizers, and event sponsors.
The Kattack Race Player system functions by having each racing boat carrying a readily available 6oz hand held GPS receiver. Tracking data from each receiver is downloaded after the race and merged with all racer data. This data can be viewed after racing using the Kattack Race Player.
Kattack Yacht Club Series packages can be used by yacht clubs to track and replay club racing on their own. Kattack Regatta Services can offer race tracking services, party tent replays, and online mass market videos for race organizers and their sponsors.
